Tea for Christmas Dinner

Remembering a Christmas Dinner Past:

We had a great but simple Christmas dinner, accompanied by chilled Adagio Cranberry Black Tea (the number one pick in my very unscientific poll). Everything was so yummy, that it inspired the poet within me: Continue reading Tea for Christmas Dinner

Twas the Night Before… (a tea poem for Christmas)

One of the most famous poems around is “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, but there are other versions that are lesser known, like this one I just made up:

’Twas the night before Christmas, when in our small house
We put on the kettle — just me and my spouse;
The tea leaves were put in the teapot with care,
Awaiting the water on stove heating there; Continue reading Twas the Night Before… (a tea poem for Christmas)

My Version of “Jingle Bells”: Gifts of Tea!

Tea Gang Greetings!

From our house to your house – best wishes for your holiday!

The dining table is about 5 feet in diameter, plenty of room for me and the Tea Gang to gather for a photo. (Actually, this isn’t quite the whole gang, and we didn’t have room to crowd in the various teacups and mugs that have joined us over the years in our tea adventures.) Our human caretakers are shown here holding their mugs of tea… well, just a hand of each human is showing. We need those hands for moving us around, putting tea leaves in us, pouring water into the tea kettle, and so on. We’re all hoping that you’ve enjoyed our tea adventures all these years and will stay with us and we continue in the years ahead. Continue reading Tea Gang Greetings!

5 Cute Christmas Tea Mug Themes!

Mug designers are a creative lot sometimes. And when it comes to mugs for your cuppa Christmas tea (or even your hot cocoa), these folks seem to outdo themselves in the cute department. I’m a total sucker for cute, especially when it comes to such mugs! We tend to go for ones that are first and foremost for holding that hot beverage and after that a cute item. But we came across some online that definitely prioritize the “cute” over the “useful” – and with sterling results as you can see here. Continue reading 5 Cute Christmas Tea Mug Themes!
